Kehlani began a relationship with Irving in January, but was accused of cheating on him with her ex, musician PartyNextDoor in March.

The 20-year-old musician soon faced an onslaught of hatred on social media, which she says led to her having "no single wish to see tomorrow," according to a message she posted from the hospital after attempting to take her own life.

"It's unfortunate that it's received so much attention but it's become bigger because of a post that was misunderstood," Irving tweeted. "It's been hard to see what's been going on and not address the truth."

The cheating allegations emerged after PartyNextDoor posted a photo to Instagram of Kehlani in bed with him. Irving addressed the since-deleted Instagram post that lead to the firestorm, writing, "I do not justify the picture or what dude did to try and spark all of this nonsense that could have been avoided, but me and Kehlani were not dating when the picture came out."

In the post Kehlani shared from her hospital bed, she too denied the rumors, writing, "No one was ever cheated on and I'm not a bad person. Everyone is hurt and everyone is in a place of misunderstanding."


On Tuesday, singer Chris Brown decided to weigh in by mocking the troubled GRAMMY-nominated singer and accusing her of faking her depression in an effort to gain publicity.

Brown later added, "Girls be mad at a n**ga for f**king around wit b**ches but her DMs got more names then the Declaration of Independence. #YEAHIMTHROWINGSHADE."
